We live in a global world, with a global marketplace. The market differences between countries and continents have led to a big difference in production costs and, due to global market dynamics, we’ve all come to expect low prices and good value. That's why we have created our Gloxy series.
To achieve great value without compromise. I decided by working hard on production facilities and carefully selecting raw materials we can produce unique instruments valued both by professionals and upcoming young players to create their future as artists, to make their dreams come true without settling for mediocre instruments which lack identity.
This new approach allows us to make the most of all the advantages of living in Italy, with our “Italian Style”, allowing our “Glocalisation” to win over globalisation. By “Glocalisation” I mean that we are able to make the most of our “Local” world, with the unique Italian lifestyle that’s envied throughout the world.
By using all this creativity, perfectly harmonised with the great relationship network that we have built worldwide, it allows me to develop and design unique instruments with unbeatable value for money.
Mine is not just a product, it's a carefully created project, a different way to conceive production and to do business, a new philosophy that lets us synergistically merge all the advantages of our changing world. And the result? Products with a consistent and extremely important added value: Our Markbass Value!
Superior products, at a competitive price which reflects my respect for all my dealers, my passionate commitment to music and, most of all, to musicians and their instruments!

> GV SERIES
GV SERIES is our range of bass guitars that demonstrate our ability to produce a high quality instrument at an incredible price.
This achievement is a direct result of our tireless work to compare the quality and price of parts and materials from a wide range of
suppliers. We chose only the best components for our Gloxy series, maintaining our focus on excellent value for money.
> PLAYABILITY / COMFORT / QUALITY ASSURANCE
The bass neck has the same characteristics as our JP series of instruments - inherent playability, and comfort. The balance of each
string is accurate and defined, without any 'boomy' resonant frequencies even across the fifth string's range. Each instrument is
inspected for quality against our strict requirements at our headquarters in Italy. Gloxy series bass guitars receive the same standard of
care and attention as our higher end instruments.
> MB INSTRUMENT PRE INSIDE
The Gloxy series is equipped with the same MB Instrument Pre that is featured on our premium range of instruments. This onboard
preamp is designed from the ground up by Markbass to faithfully reproduce the sound of your instrument. Changes in the volume level
when switching from Active to Passive and back again are almost imperceptible - a unique feature of the exceptional circuitry inside.
Simple & ergonomic controls allow you to richly boost or cut your EQ without clipping or distorting the signal - even at the maximum
settings - allowing the MB Instrument Pre to work with you in any environment.
> DELUXE GIG BAG INCLUDED
In addition to the great value already offered by our Gloxy basses, all instruments in this series come with the fantastic MB BASS BAG DELUXE to keep your new purchase safe. Like all Markbass products, this case is made to our precise quality standards, without compromise and also in this case we want to offer you so much more, without compromises.
